I saw the movie percy jackson and the lightning thief before i read the book.THE BOOK IS WAY BETTER!! After reading the book, i was hooked. I am 20 and love listening to this series. I am into greek mythology and love the spin on the greek stories, yet pretty accurate. It's an amazing book and since college gets in the way of reading an actual book, i love listening to the story on my ipod. i recommend it.

Good story telling! Poor Percy gets kicked out of private school (again!) then has to combine forces with other God's offspring to save the Golden Fleece, the camp & Grover, but also uncovers Luke's newest plan to unleash Chronos to bring an end to the Olympian Gods in NYC. This kid just can't catch a break! Oh, and he get's a half brother named Tyson...and is taught acceptance and grows up a little. Loved the story. It was good times. Will continue this series for sure. Only complaint is same with first one, that I'm still getting used to the narrator's pace and voice.
I have enjoyed all the Percy Jackson books, and this was no exception. They are certainly a young reader’s story but I, at 25, enjoyed them none the less. If you enjoyed the first installment, you will certainly enjoy this addition to the Percy Jackson saga.
We listened to the Percy Jackson book on a camping road trip. It is a fun, family friendly book. My Jr. High School and High School daughters both enjoyed the book and it gave us something to do while driving at night time and during long sections of our road trip.
I have tried and tried to keep listening to this audiobook but the narrator is just so awful that I can't even finish it. I have never had such a problem that I couldn't get used to it, but this one was horrible. Waste of credits for me, I'll buy and read it.
I really love these books. they are well written and well read. Keeps you listening all the way to the end. then you can't wait to hear the next one
This was a great book with a great narrator. I would recommend this book to any listeners.
These stories are fun and entertaining, but the guy they hired to read them is absolutely awful. His character "voices" all sound the same and are equally irritating. If only Jim Dale had been allowed to read this one...
This really isn't very good. I am hoping the rest of the series is better. The author's first book in this series was ok as a starter, but the writing didn't improve in this one. The over the top ability of the children to out reason the "immortal gods" is taken to far this time out.
